My g-g-grandfather, William N. Dealy moved to Madison County Ky, just south of Richmond in about 1800. He raised 9 children there between about 1800 and 1831. He moved to Decatur Co., IN in 1831 where he lived until 1848 when his wife, Mary Lizzie Danner died. Then he moved to Jackson Co, Mo to the homes of his sons Talton and William N. Jr. near Harrisonville (Cass Co). He died just prior to 1852. One of his sons, Edward or Edmund stayed behind with his family in KY when the rest of the family moved to IN. Any information about the Dealys / Dailys in this part of the country would be much appreciated.

WILLCOCKSON, WILCOCKSON, WILCOXSON, WILCOXEN ETC. for over 100 years it has been a tradition in my family that Sarah Boone Willcockson, who was the sister of Daniel Boone, was buried in Madison County. This has not yet been proved. Her place of burial remains unknown, to my knowledge. Please share your knowledge with me about any Willcocksons etc. that were in Madison County up to 1840
